Perfect Pair 2-day Blog Hop

Welcome to DAY 2 of the  
Perfect Pair 2-day Blog Hop.
Creative Cuts & More has paired up with Clear & Simple Stamps to bring you two days of amazing inspiration and prizes! We challenged both design teams to pair up die cuts from Creative Cuts & More and stamp sets from Clear & Simple Stamps. A match made in Heaven!


The Prizes
There are 2 prizes up for grabs today. Two lucky people will win either a $25 Gift Certificate from Clear & Simple Stamps or a $25 Gift Certificate from Creative Cuts & More. Your chances to win end Friday, 11:59pm EST. Winner will be announced on Saturday. Thanks for stopping by and good luck! 


I have two projects for you today. The first project is the Circle Window A2 Card with Mat.

The stamp set I used is one of my favorites from Clear & Simple Stamps, ABC123.

 I ordered this Apple #01 small in chipboard, as well as, red and green cardstock to make this delicious, layered embellishment. I think I used every stamp in this set!!

I stamped the apple on yellow paper then colored it in a bit with Copics. The house image is from another Clear & Simple Stamps set, Home. Isn't it just darling?

The more you stamp on the inside the less you have to write. Am I right? ;) I think the staples are a nice touch.

Now on to the second project . . . .

Every teacher deserves not only a beautiful handmade card but a gift box to match. This is the Apple Window Square Box #01 from Creative Cuts & More.

I made the banner with three Triangle #01 petites. I love the look of the graphic crayon stamp in the background and the pop of yellow on top.

I stamped the alphabet repeatedly from the ABC123 set and distressed the edges of the box with ink and a sponge. Even the button is from Clear & Simple Stamps!

Inside is a special keepsake for teacher. It's a magnet made from the same chipboard apple I used on the card. Below you can see the magnet in action.



These die cuts and stamps are truly the Perfect Pair!! Leave some love for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate!!

Your next stop is Jen Tapler! 

Thanks for stopping by and good luck!
